The school has its premises in a 19th century building in thecenter of Florence just in front of the Bargello National Museum. The area is close to the Cathedral and the Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall.

The student is literally immersed in the artistic, historical and cultural heart of Florence, the so-called “cradle of the Renaissance”, within walking distance of the most prestigious monuments of the Romanesque, Gothic and the 15th century art.
